What's your background in ultimate? I started playing with a couple of friends my sophomore year of high school.

Favorite animal? Puffins

Walk up song? Sorry not Sorry by Demi Lovato

Pump up song? Me Too by Meghan Trainor

What's your favorite Kali memory? Warming up and playing during our semi finals game against Texas. There was so much Kali weird and love. And doing our "I believe" cheer after every game. It's so powerful.

Why do role models matter? Role models matter because they show you an example that you can strive towards. They can show you little parts of the person you want to become.

What does equity mean to you? To me, equity means feeling empowered by being a women in ultimate and not feeling like it is detrimental.
